Brock Osweiler took one last dig at Denver's fans after Houston's 27-9 loss to the Broncos. He figured they would "be a little bit louder with the boos."

Denver's defenders ruined Osweiler's homecoming by hurrying, hitting and harassing their ex-quarterback Monday night, even if his ears weren't ringing from the crowd noise.

Here are some of the headlines and top social posts from last night's prime time match-up:

USA TODAY SPORTS: Broncos' Talib says Trevor Siemian 'better than Brock' Osweiler

“If you look at it overall, (Elway) saved a bunch of money. And Trev is a great quarterback, man. He's better than Brock in my eyes. So it’s a win-win situation,” Broncos Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib told USA TODAY Sports.

"The whole time I thought I had a pick-six," Chris Harris said. "I wish he would have held the ball and threw that pick to me. I was right there for it."

Is Osweiler a better quarterback than Siemian? Maybe, there is limited evidence to date of that conclusion, and he certainly wasn’t on Monday night.
